Generation of An Inbred Miniature Pig Model of Retinitis Pigmentosa

A recent paper by Jason W. Ross, Juan P. Fernandez de Castro, Jianguo Zhao, Melissa Samuel, Eric Walters, Cecilia Rios, Patricia Bray-Ward, Bryan W. JonesRobert E. MarcWei Wang, Liang Zhou, Jennifer M. Noel, Maureen A. McCallPaul J. DeMarcoRandall S. Prather and Henry J. Kaplan describes the creation of a new model of retinal degenerative disease, specifically autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa in a miniature pig model, serving as an additional tool to study these diseases and therapeutic interventions.
